About the course

The Master’s degree explores how to produce healthier and safer food following a cross-cutting, farm/field-to-fork approach. Theoretical lessons are mixed with practical training, offering hands-on experience in advanced DNA RNA and protein analysis together with lab sessions in bioinformatics. Focused on the application of innovative biotechnological methodologies in food production and safety, it is the ideal trait-d’union between the requests of consumers and producers in the agro-food sector and the research applied to production and food-safety.
